Verna's Pepper Shack, Brixham, Devon
If you like delicious authentic Caribbean food, get down to Verna’s Pepper Shack in Brixham. An added bonus is the stunning harbourside view, which gives this family run restaurant such a relaxing atmosphere, in fact it’s equally good for a nice family meal or a romantic dinner for two.
The Caribbean feel really shines at Verna’s Pepper Shack, with music, genuine carnival costumes displayed on the walls and period posters; you kinda feel like you’re on a wonderful tropical holiday! The real gem is the food though; there’s a big emphasis on locally caught fresh seafood (after all, this is Brixham!) and spice; amazing mouth-watering spices, blended to perfection, flavours zinging together like magic. If that’s not your thing don’t worry because there’s plenty more on the menu - traditional Caribbean dishes like Jamaica Jerk Chicken, Curry Goat and Jerk Pork Skewers and for something local with their own twist there’s Westcountry Mutton Pie.
Desserts are mouth-watering (if you have room for them) and include classics like Banoffee Pie and Sticky Toffee Pudding, as well as exciting temptations like a Spiced Rum Panacotta with Cornish ice cream. Vegetarians are catered for and they have a children’s menu; something for everyone, go along and give it a try.
